2023 State of the Union Address by President von der Leyen (13.09.23)
When I stood in front of you in 2019 with my programme for a green, digital, and geopolitical Europe I know that some had doubts. And that was before the world turned upside down with a global pandemic and a brutal war on European soil.
But look at where Europe is today
We have seen the birth of a geopolitical Union—supporting Ukraine, standing up to Russia's aggression, responding to an assertive China, and investing in partnerships.
Long live Europe.
